but organizing this talk. and john phillips, a mechanical engineer, all over the world who is here and advised me on technical aspects of energy in the book and to read the will manuscript to check on scientific details of it. this is an appropriate day for talking about "regulating to disaster" because president obama promised once more to develop the energy sources of the future. when any administration, republican or democrat decides to develop energy projects, taxpayers had better watch out. governments get in the business of picking winners and losers which leads to cronyism and wasted taxpayer dollars. this is the question of industrial policy, whether government should support business ventures in new technologies that are unable to secure private funding. government appears to be worse at this than private markets from the records we have over the past five years. in contrast in a speech in california in may, mitt romney said, quote, the president doesn't understand when you invest like that in one solar energy company it makes it harder for solar technology generally because the other en

disciples and 12 guice he spent special time with, three, peter, james and john huji singled out for special leadership training and against all odds there is one disciple identified as the one whom jesus loved where from across jesus basically gives his mother to john, the beloved disciple and gives john the beloved to settle to his mom and says take care of each other. when his mother and brothers came looking for him because he was making too much, jesus said it goes against the role of my father and mother and brothers, he knows about families of choice. .. clearly a deep and spiritual relationship or that between jesus and the olympic disciple. but i don't think we hope our case any to extrapolate from that more than the tax can bear. the shoshone people of what is fair and just let them sit with it. like really, i think we'd be better off. right here, who's next? >> thank you for your talk. i was actually raised to make church similar to what you describe. our church was 12,000 people and it was predominately blacks. i work for mass equality is a community engagement organizer and some

that we are making, it is called desperate sons, "samuel adams, patrick henry, john hancock, and the secret bands of radicals who led the colonies to war". thank you, and i know you're going to enjoy the presentation. [applause] [applause] >> thank you. i am david nasaw and i am absolutely delighted to be here. the sun does not shine like it does here in other places. as i tell my history students until they want to choke me, the past is a foreign country. we can visit their, we can try to learn the costumes, we can translate the language, we can feel the air in the light. we can sniff the pregnancies and recoil at the foul orders. we are foreigners in a strange land. writing about the recent past is not easy. as i learned this time around. first, there are people you talk to. while i was privileged to talk to a a lot of kennedys, it was difficult for me as a historian working with living people. i would much prefer to work with documents. with living people, you can't tell, but you have to figure out what is true, what is not true, what are they tell you, whether they thin

-- too sophisticated to fight each other. john maynard keynes echoed this with his famous observation about how an englishman could order from his doorstep products from far lands and have them -- faraway lands and have them delivered to him. it's kind of an early version of thomas friedman's delve theory which claims that advanced countries that use computers won't go to war together, i call it the starbucks theory. i guess unless they have triple espressos. in a much different way, it was posited that war would be so bloody that no one would dare risk a conflict. all of these views assume that european leaders would be rational, a stretch even in the present day. this, of course, vanished in august 1914. a war sparked by one of the most unlikely of accidents when archduke ferdinand on his way back from a speech turned away from his planned route to visit a guard injured in an earlier, failed assassination attempt. of course, he drove to his death, an incident that would plunge the world into a conflagration. i won't delve into the details of world war i here. perhaps the most signif

and iraq when george w. bush ran for the reelection against john kerry for the voters by a small margin seemed to believe bush would be the better leader. it cannot be said that the vote reflected the favorable referendum on george of the bush's first term. the importance of the communication skill of the candidate cannot be discounted as a factor, however. but all of this misses a different evaluation that merits being taken into account in the incumbent barack obama and his challenger mitt romney. that is the jinx of the second term on so many presidents. only seven of 19 presidents elected to a second term avoided having a troubled or failed second term. that would give the country's 38% chance of obama and the nation experiencing the economic climate if obama is reelected. do not suggest the gamble shouldn't be taken. rather it is playing with politics might give us cause. what is the history project about a second term for barack obama were he free elective with so few presidents having success in that time in office. one of the challenges that face those that have troubled or fail

, 1826, john adams receives a group of visitors in his upstairs library the town leaders of quincy organizing the upcoming anniversary of the declaration of independence and they are known from out as the office for independence. they asked him for a toast to be read to the celebrants on july july 4th from 1826 and adam replies independence forever. he says not a word. so i have nothing more to say except independence forever. the united states seems to be leading the charge of looking at liberal democrats such as hillary clinton and also the neocons and the invasion of iraq and most recently the globalist obama and the invasion of libya so my question is here we have the united states tonight and the sovereignty of other nations and that is a problem when we have two parties with both essentially are war parties. >> in my book i distinguish between sovereignty in general which would be the sovereignty currently of the burmese or any autocratic state and i call them the philadelphians but there are other democratic sovereign states that make that distinction to be the democratic so

the second volume we are working on now. as john mentioned, this is volume one deficit to 1945 and volume two will be out about this time next year, 1946 to president. i have to warn readers, such as those who see me speak before probably know me for a little more lighthearted insertion, but this is instead dominated by two unspeakably deadly wars sandwiched around a nearly worldwide depression and characterized by such villains as miscellany, stallman and hitler. i don't even think joe biden cannot get that material. while we have some sidebar section, one of my favorite is a comparison and contrast between the world are to puncture the architects of the day, tony gaudi walter gropius who epitomize nature, god and man and not order a robert pires during race for the north pole. the bulk of this book is dedicated to those political forces that reshape the century. as one who gravitates the great gary, osama said above servers last week at a book signing event when a questioner asked me, who's the most person in your vote? it dawned on me this really isn't a book about the most important peopl

of actually and john updike, it's been some amateur psychologist wrote that they have pressure on the cortex, these people, where there's, eloquence is pressing down on them and this would have to release it as an underground whale would release water. it's they can't not do it. john wrote 100 books in his life, and fantastic, quality. and you just have two bow out and hold their code while they do that. you can't compete. >> he was also, surprisingly, when he would deliver whether a manuscript or his essays as well for various publications, his objective come to turn in his piece in the mighty one of two things he would aggressively fight for, but what sort turn it over and let you do -- there was nothing to do really. >> there was nothing to do but often as editors they say we need to cut 1000 words for ads or perfume do whatever. he would you say okay, and he would find it and get rid of it. he was completely open discussion. not to say he didn't value his work when he was asked. it's just that was part of the craft and the work of having signed up for certain publications. >> you and i'v

level of excitement. this was a huge success. john brennan went overboard to talk about it that was engaged in over 15 years so you can understand the visceral excitement and accomplishment and there was a tremendous amount of excitement so as often happens or as always happens individuals on the white house ba'ath, a pentagon staff talk more than they should about what happens. i don't think anyone gave away national secrets but they did deliver misinformation credit characterize the seal rate as the intense firefight. it wasn't. the seals were fired upon one's. they returned fire, the guy who shot at them died. after that there was no more shooting. going to the house room by room in the adult male were sealed once they were fired upon. they cannot wait so they went through the house shot to every adult male in-house accidentally shot the wife of of one of the men. to characterize that to wac people the firefight is a stretch. reflecting animus toward bin laden he had been the big life of luxury, i don't know about you but as somebody locked me in a house with 12 child

socialism and john mccain's cap-and-trade plan, and lots of things in the stimulus, things like a smart grid, electronic health records, extending unemployment benefits, never had been controversial before. the -- so the good news is the fever could break; right? certainly, mitch mcconnell said his top priority would be keeping obama a one-term president. not anymore. you need a different priority now. [applause] but, you know the problem is the incentive structure for republicans. as, you know, i'm not the first to point out, in the book, about how they shed their moderates as they've become more and more dependent on tea party voters. you know, mitch mcconnell has to worry about a primary collage in 2014, and boehner has to worry about a leadership challenge from the right so there's certainly a primp on what they can do. that said, the incentives have changed, and you saw chris christie's incentive changed, and there's, you know, the fiscal cliff creates different incentives, and i think the end of -- the end of that one term goal means that different republicans will start to have differ
